Trick or Treat!!! Happy Halloween!!!

We celebrated Halloween in our small town on Sunday!
The celebration starts by all the children dressed in costume to meet at the town park.
 
At 3:30 the towns fire trucks block the highway and the ghosts and goblins parade down the street to the town hall for the Annual Halloween Party!

Look at All the people!!!
 
Love that skeleton guy!!!

This has been a tradition since I was a little girl.  The excitement of having the highway blocked so I could be in a parade ~ such fond memories!!!
The only exception is that when I was little we didn't have Trick or Treating  ~ we just had a party at the town hall where our costumes were judged and if you were lucky enough to win ~ you won a dollar.  They showed silly cartoons and handed out treat bags.  My have things changed.
 
Now with the children off to the Halloween party ~ time to get my spook on!!!
My artist friend Mary painted my face ~ isn't she silly!!!

Here I am!!!
 
Waiting for the Trick or Treaters!



(Bummer ~ my battery died) I didn't get any more pics of trick or treaters :(
 
We all had a Spooktacular Time!
My Home!

Boo!

Wishing you all a Spooktacular Halloween!!!
 
Blessings
Robin

A fun post
I love those cats eyes in the upstairs window
I wish I lived on a half busy street so I could decorate like that and someone would actually see it, lol
Happy halloween

What a fun time for everyone, I wish we would do that here as well, it would be so much safer for the kids. As it is, the kids over here wait until it gets dark and then run from house to house to get their treats. I always worry about them dashing across and back on the streets.

Love the cat eyes in your top window!! Everything is so beautifully decorated, love it all!!

It was pouring rain this morning but now it seems to have stopped so I'm hoping it doesn't start up again before the trick or treaters start arriving! Happy Halloween:-) xo

We dont celebrate halloween in Australia like you all do in the states. But its getting bigger here with stuff becoming available in shops from costumes to enormous carving pumpkins.
I love the costumes and makeup that everyone takes so much trouble with. but your house!! omg that is amazing! I think i would rather do up my house like that for halloween rather than do christmas decos!! lol
